SSH Tectia

Using sftpg3

sftpg3 is an FTP-like client that can be used for secure file transfers over the network. sftpg3 uses ssh-broker-g3 to provide a secure transport using the Secure Shell version 2 protocol.

Even though it functions like ftp, sftpg3 does not use any FTP daemon or FTP client for its connections. sftpg3 can be used on SSH Tectia client tools for z/OS to connect to any host that is running a Secure Shell version 2 server with the sftp-server (or sft-server-g3) subsystem enabled.

The command-line version of sftpg3 supports the streaming and checkpoint/restart functions when SSH Tectia Server is used as the Secure Shell server.

The basic syntax of sftpg3 is:

sftpg3 user@host

The actual usage of sftpg3 is similar to the traditional ftp program.

For more information on the command-line options and commands, see sftpg3(1).
